Thursday Thirteen: Edition "Q"

I have to be honest and say that I almost skipped the letter "q", because there are no "q" words I can have fun with. No singers' names begin with q; no states or towns. So this week my entry is going to be very boring. But I may as well go ahead; I've made it this far.

1. Quicksilver: SS Quicksilver of Fallneva was a high-class Jersey bull I used on my tiny herd back in the 80's. I was very proud to be able to own some of his daughters. That's the wonderful thing about artificial insemination in cattle: Anyone has access to the best bulls in the world.

2. quiz: Doesn't everybody hate pop quizzes?

3. Quiznos: We ate there once because it was free; I prefer Subway.

4. Quandary: Something I often experience when thinking about certain neighbors.

5. quilt: My mom turned out quilts by the hundreds after she retired.

6. quart: When Cliff and I acquired our first milk cow, he drank a quart of milk with almost every meal.

7. quaint: a polite way of saying "run-down".

8. queasy: I very seldom have a queasy stomach.

9. Quiktrip: That's where Cliff usually gasses up, at least when we're in the greater Kansas City area.

10. quack: I've been to a lot of dentists I considered to be quacks.

11. questions: You get a lot of them when you have small children around.

12. quiet: I love how quiet it is at this house.

13. qualms: That's what I had about doing this entry.

I had to read your entry to see what you came up with and was surprised to see you didn't mention Queen... Have a great weekend!

You did good on those "Q's". Great picture of your Mom. Something about her makes me think of my own Mother. Helen

I like the Q's. We have a quack dentist here in town. He is nearly at the end of our road. I went once, hated him. Two of my friends went and had similar experiences. Sadist. Truly.
